Transfer Students Info
Our Call to Action
"Our goal is for Ferris State University to be the transfer institution of choice. The hands-on, applied nature of many of our programs makes us an attractive option. We know from past experience that transfer students do well academically and that their retention and graduation rates are quite high. Our new transfer scholarships are an added incentive to help students with their educational costs and also provide the means for us to strengthen our partnerships with community colleges."
- David Eisler, FSU President
Opportunities in Education
- Four new competitive transfer scholarships are being made available beginning in Fall 2006 to transfer students in all undergraduate programs. The scholarships offer anywhere from $1,500 to $2,700 per academic year or in-state tuition for non-resident or international students.
- A Military Veterans Scholarship Program was made available beginning in January. The program provides a $1,000 annual scholarship and waives out-of-state tuition fees for qualified veterans.
- Ferris already has several 2+2 degrees in place, where students can earn an associate degree at their community college (or Ferris) and then their bachelor's degree.
- Since 1974, Ferris has taken higher education to the citizens of Michigan through partnerships with local entities, particularly community colleges. With the heightened awareness of the need for education beyond high school and the recent recognition that Michigan lags the nation in baccalaureate degree holders, Ferris has expanded its efforts to offer distinctive baccalaureate-level programming in additional communities.
- Administrators will have an opportunity to discuss ideas for collaboration, current and future program offerings that bring students' educational needs to the forefront with higher education officials at Delta College, Schoolcraft College, Wayne County Community College and Kalamazoo Valley Community College.
